cuomo from erik. james says in connecticut there are two major problems, the deficit and more taxes. both problems are created by one party rule. what are the big issues in your state? join that conversation on facebook by looking for c-span. let us take a look at the balance of power in state. we can see here who controls the governors' seats. 30 republicans states in red, 19 democratic, and one independent in rhode island. but as your what ray has to say on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i wanted to say that i believe here in the state of texas -- our standard of living is what keeps is going. nobody can live on $7.25 hour. our standard of living is so below the economy it should be at $12 per hour. everything is so expensive right now. it should be, at the very least, $12 per hour. host: you are calling to raise the minimum wage? caller: yes, ma'am. if everybody makes at least $12 an hour, this country would boom so fast. here in the state of texas -- i think it is everywhere. the corruption of the governor and the mayor. big corporate donors, big business owners. they
with incentives to take risks and bring ideas from dream to reality. tax credit to help early-stage companies to develop andit's worked in other states, and it's something we can do this session. i will work with the legislature to make it more desirable for small and medium size businesses to hire more people in washington. we must also do a better job commercializing the technologies connecting the dots from the classroom to the laboratory to the marketplace. and no economic strategy would be complete without a transportation plan that facilitates this growth. this session i expect to work with stakeholders that have already committed to a bipartisan plan to build an infrastructure for the next generation. in the next ten years, our population will grow by approximately three quarters of a million people, but we will not be adding one more square inch of dirt. to honestly address our recognize that creativity is just as important as concrete. i want us to turn our innovative spirit towards crafting a transportation package that includes roads, trains, light rail, buses, bike routes and othe
, a trillion dollar tax hike took effect. the senate voted to prevent tax hikes and 90% of americans. and made the lower tax hikes permanent. president obama got less revenue than the speaker offered in the first place. in short, there is no way we were going to get a better deal for the american tax payer. we wanted to keep tax hikes low for everybody. we wanted to cut spending. otherwise every single taxpayer would have paid higher taxes and our economy would have gotten into a nosedive. the decision was simple. if you think a bill needs to pass, you vote for it. many of my colleagues voted the other way. i respect their decision. prudence demands mutual understanding, especially among friends. my colleagues and i saw the same thing. we wanted a smaller, smarter government. we simply differed on the means. that is the difficulty of governing. it should not be a cause for division. our tactics will differ from issue to issue, but our strategy remains the same. in the next four years, opportunity will not come easily. we have to pay our bills and make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow. to do
the taxes that support government expenditures. they paid premiums through their employers for health coverage. they forgo wage increases that could be much higher if health costs were not growing as fast. they believe are the beneficiaries of the whole two trillion dollars in the end. we are not talking about the blood in the streets. people fighting over dwindling -- over a dwindling pie. i would posit that only in health care what the growth from two 0.9 trillion dollars in 2013 to 5.1 trillion dollars in 2023 would be referred to as a shrinking pie. there will be plenty of resources flowing into the health-care system, just not quite as much as would be flowing if nothing was done. we are talking now to give you some sense of the magnitude of this. we are talking about the .rojected health policy twee if you say two trillion dollars in that growth, you would be reducing health spending to only 40 trillion dollars over the next 10 years. you would be cutting the growth in health spending from an estimated 90% under current policy to only 75% over the next two -- over the next 10 ye
a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that w
and pass a background check. you would be required to do that if you're illegal. pay a fine and back taxes. earn probationary legal status. learn english. continue to pay taxes. show work history and then get a green card and then apply for citizenship. effectively you would go to the back of the line. so this is a bipartisan effort. remember, some of these commissions have come together in the past, in the last four years, specifically about the debt and the president hasn't necessarily taken on the plan that they have come up with. so this will be really important to see if it actually works. >>brian: a really important provision, skills valued. we've got engineers out there, computer technology experts, people when they have skills -- for example, if they train at american universities, they would get a priority. this is what microsoft and you always heard apple saying. we need more engineers in this country. why are we training them and letting them go back home? let's give them u.s. status or a green card. marco rubio talks about a plan. >> before we can move towards a path for green
-class families, of which could then go to educating their kids or building up their savings. tax reform, that is also important for conservatives and republicans. host: a question from our viewer -- guest: tom cotten, the congressman from arkansas, a friend of mine. he went to harvard, which i went to, so i'm biased. he went to harvard law school, which i don't hold against him. he volunteered for the army in 2004, served as an officer in iraq and afghanistan, work for is that business a while, had a close primary against an aggressive womaperson. but he won. there he is, a first term congressman in the house. he will be able to weigh in on the chuck hagel nomination. he has spoken eloquently on that. he is a real rising star in the house. he is already respected by his peers. he was involved with the speaker, paul ryan, and others, in trying to devise a tactical maneuver to get the debt ceiling moved back and to able to deal with sequester. he will have a tough decision in a few months. there's pressure on him in arkansas to run for senate in 2014 against price yoryor, a vulnerable dem
including fines and back taxes, undergo a background check and learn english and american civics. yesterday, marco rubio in florida sought to win over conservatives opposed to any deal with threats of amnesty. >> there are over 11 million workers undocumented. that's not something any wanted to see happen. it is what has happened. we have an obligation and need to address the reality of the situation we face. i think today is an important first step in what's going to be a significant complicated journey. the issue of immigration is not a simple one. we have the opportunity to do it right and if we do, i think we'll do a tremendous service to our country. snow jo . >> joe, remains to be seen how far this gets but you see john mccain and lindsey graham talking about what they're talking about in terms of a bill that even hints at amnesty. >> no doubt about it, things have changed in the last five years. there will still be conservatives in the house who want to be assured by marco rubio and john mccain and any conservative that supports this bill that won't be a repeat of 1996, that was an o
taxes. i think one of the things that you're seeing is there is this change. i think it's happened much more quickly than a lot of people thought it would. mccain reverting back to the old mccain. lindsey graham who is facing probably a primary test down in south carolina, a state that is now 5% latino. one of the fastest-growing states in the terms of latino population down there. so i think we're going to see the sort of blood letting on the republican party along all of these issues, but i think at the end of the day mccain speaks for a majority of republicans who are looking at a way to reform their party and looking at these changing demographics. >> howard, the stakes are high for one republican in particular. senator marco rubio has been front and center on rush limbaugh's radio program making the case for immigration reform. while limbaugh praised him, he's also met his share of critics. see what david vitter told laura ingrham today. >> i love marco but i think he's amazingly naive on this issue. this is the same old formula we've dealt with before including when it passed in 1
island hold there so big money people can come there and shelter their tax money and stuff like that. >> stephanie: awesome. >> caller: isn't that a great idea? >> stephanie: right. and no rules or regulations of any kind. no stoplights or stop signs just go. >> are you tired of your government taking away liberties and freedoms you can't quite name. welcome welcome susseed with us. your hard-earned money is yours to teen. there are no taxes in -- glen becky becky becky becky stan stan. >> there are no roads, police teachers, libraries, garbage pickup or sewage statement in -- >> glen becky becky becky becky stan stan. >> but you will friend off the wild animals and then the survivalist train willing kick in. who needs government. it is over rated. join us in -- >> glen becky becky stan stan. >> want to shoot your gun in all directions, go ahead. with a small down payment it can be yours. >> above the fruited plains. >> our future is in the past. >> stephanie: good call, producer chris. >> thank you. >> stephanie: you just dropped that out of nowhere. >> i did. it was
became adults, we ended up paying more in taxes every year than my father and mother would pay in taxes as an immigrant family with a first and second grade education. i think that's a perfect example of why this is important. the bess they can we can do for the economy is to get this immigration -- comprehensive immigration reform right and get it done now. >> indeed. david, despite what we have just heard from the congressman who is very enthusiastic, rush limbaugh says the government's dole is what lures immigrants here. take a listen. >> i have seen a number of research, scholarly research data, which says that vast majority of arriving immigrants today come here because they believe that government is the source of prosperity. >> so that heaving mass of poison says that the borders are literally stacked full of people coming to take entitlements and benefits. >> yaen time yanytime you hear word scholarly research data and rush limbaugh together you know something is wrong. the congressman just told us a very shorthand story of his own family. obviously that one anecdote and many ot
for gay people, 60%. on aid to the poor, 59%, on tax levels for millionaires and big corporation, 59%. women's issue, 55%. immigration, 55%. i mean, these are high numbers of people feeling the gop is out of touch on these issues. >> yeah, i mean, reverend al, the shocking thing is, as you just laid out, the support for democratic policies is even h h higher than support for democratic politicians. the president won a decisive victory, but the support for the issues and policies is going to push is even higher. so the republicans are delusional to be saying that the issue is just a matter of reaching out or modernizing technology and that their principles are sound. it's their principles and policies that were rejected by the voters and that continues. and you're right, too, to point to that symbolism of that awful chair. i mean, that was the worst moment of a terrible convention. >> in the chair of the gop's office. what could you be thinking about? >> right, a cranky old man lecturing our first african american president in prime time in tampa helped take the party down. but while
that in our tax code. our tax code is so complicated because there are so many giveaways to the special interest groups or the well-connected that don't privilege americans that work hard and try to put food on the table. >> i have often wondered and explored this if people have an appetite for limited government? americans in general, the government keeps getting bigger. we struggle to obtain the a slower right of growth, which is a great vibtry in a way it is. have you found an appetite for limited government? or limited government for others and not for themselves? >> i believe so. i said often times in the campaign trail that the constitution is very popular and big government is not popular. that is where we should anchor our program and policies. you saw this in the president's speech on monday even though it was a very liberal speech. he didn't call for big government. >> the inaugural address? >> yeah, the inaugural address. that's because he knows what bill clinton knew in 1996, that big government is over. so i do think -- >> the era is over. >> yeah. again, if political leade
friend. >>> let's check in with anderson cooper. >>> billions of your tax dollars used and not much to show for it. this is outrageous. it was money wasted under the pretense of transforming a rail system. we're keeping them honest. they weren't such good pals. hillary clinton, president obama cap off a run as secretary of state on a sit-down interview on "60 minutes." >>> he was an inspiration to photo journalists around the world. tim heathering ton died doing what he does best, what happened in the midst of world. libya, 40 years old, he was a friend to this program. i'll speak to his close friend and colleague sebastian younger who put together an amazing documentary celebrating his life. that and more at the top of the hour. >>> our fifth story "outfront," changing the rules of the game. republicans in a number of states that president obama won in november want to change the way electoral votes in their states are distributed. currently all states except nebraska and maine award all electoral votes to one candidate. states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, and ohio are lo
